Cash is going on 2 1/2 and Sawyer is 7 months old. There were times before I got pregnant with Sawyer that Logan would suggest not having any more kids. I always said I wanted to have three or four babies…so just one definitely wasn’t an option for me. I also wanted Cash to have a sibling. I wanted him to be able to have someone to play with, someone to get excited with on Christmas morning, someone to vent to when “mom & dad are being harsh”, and, of course, someone to share his toys with! 😉
Bringing home Sawyer & introducing her to Cash was one of the most emotional things I’ve ever experienced. Seeing my new baby with my big baby made my heart fill with joy, and I just so badly wanted him to love her. Cash wasn’t even 2 yet when Sawyer was born, so he didn’t quite get the concept of a baby sister at first. I was eager to see their connection as they both got older. It actually happened sooner than I thought. Cash truly does love her. He gets worried when she cries, and gets excited when she wakes up from a nap. He gives her hugs and kisses & asks to hold her. Sawyer is easily amused by Cash and always smiles as she watches him play and talk. It’s adorable.
Sawyer is already so active. She wants to play with EVERYTHING that big brother is playing with, which annoys him, which is funny to me. I just giggle as I watch them start to learn to play with each other.
I took some photos yesterday, as they played together in their kitchen. I can’t wait to see them grow up together. I pray that they will always love & protect each other.
